I can’t explain exactly why it took me as long as it did to watch the brilliant second season of John Logan’s macabre and twisted Penny Dreadful, but I can say this much: It was really dumb to wait like that and I’ll never do it again! Particularly since the upcoming third series looks to (somehow) up the horrific ante on what was already an insanely masterful season of television. Don’t believe me? Well, then just have a look at this newly released trailer for the upcoming new season!
Yee-haw! We’re heading the American West! We’ve spent so much of the show in grimy Victorian era London that will be interesting to see how this change of scenery will affect the show’s aesthetic. Somehow I think that among that all the mesas and Rio Grande’s they’re still going to find some satanic creatures of the night.
Penny Dreadful season 3 sees the return of the magnificent Eva Green, alongside Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Billie Piper and Rory Kinnear.Newcomers feature Wes Studi, Patti LuPone, Shazad Latif and Jessica Bardem. The 9 episode season 3 debuts in the US on May 1, 2016.
